I don't know where the plug is on mine.
I don't really think it has one, but I could be wrong...

Bamacat, it might plug the canooter valve if it wasn't FULL BORE :-)
Yes, they all have it. Look behind the oil filter on the block, in one of the freeze plug noles.

I don't think that it helps for my truck to be parked for days without starting either. I should start it for like 20 mins on days I don't drive it to keep the fuel from sitting in one spot for too long.
Sent me a PM or email and I could meet ya for a Coffee???

I've had my truck parked for 14 days at the airport in sub zero temps and did not have any problems with my fuel and you should not either so long as its winterized.

Thanks Racer9.

I don't see a cord, but there's something screwed into the block just rear of the filter and below the waste gate actuator. It is threaded on the outer end and has 2 prongs inside. Would that be it, minus a cord?

Smokediver, yes, that is the plug. You can purchase the cord itself from Napa or a Cummins service center.

HW, i am actually 10-15 minutes from Molly Pitcher and there is a back entrance so I wouldnt even need to get on the TP.
Are you still looking for a trailer? My buddy just mentioned he is selling a 4 place open sled trailer. Not sure how much he wants, but if you are interested let me know.

I'd be interested in like a trade or something. I'm going to be able to fit all my machines on the trailer I have, but it's tight. The skis have to be removed from both machines. I'd be interested in hauling everything up and trading trailers at the Molly Pitcher rest stop. I think that's the southbound side though.

I've got 5 bottls of PS diesel 911 and 4 white bottles of PS. I'm going to use the heck out of that stuff.
